As much as I hate being bummed out and having a crappy day, I hate it more when it happens to my friends. I find it frustrating when I want to say some magical combination of words that will make everything better, put it all into perspective, and the hurting will instantly end.
But that never happens. Never.
So the only other thing I think of to do is just kind of wait and try to be there for them. Sometimes that’s all a person needs, but it doesn’t always feel like I’m helping out much.
